Virtual corral

Vigilant parents occasionally lose sight of their young'un at the mall or county fair. Makes for one of those gut churning moments.

Some enterprising soul came up with an idea. Tag the kid with something that can't be removed without creating an alarm, delivers a signal the length of a football field and leads you when you need to find 'em.

The ionKids package contains a portable base unit for you and a locking wrist unit for the child. If somehow the wrist unit is pulled away from the skin, an alarm sounds at the base unit.

It uses conventional radio signals, there's no cell tower or monthly charge. It automatically changes frequencies to avoid monitoring by someone else. Monitors up to 4 wrist bands. $200.
